     Conceivable, but highly unlikely; and if you want to make that
argument, then the same can be said for running with DUMPCORE enabled or
disabled even if you don't recompile.  Most such bugs are usually due to
memory corruption (double free(), stomping on the malloc() arena, etc.),
and even the slightest breeze will change their behavior.

>Also, (sorry for bugging you), why not make DUMPCORE a runtime option? it's 
>that the simple act of recompiling the program might make a bug go dormant 
>or change.
